Patrick Peterson Says DeSean Jackson and Mike Wallace Have “Crackhead Speed”
- Updated: November 19, 2014
Sometimes you miss great things, if you’re not looking. Like new terms. Phrases you’ve never heard. You know, like “crackhead speed.” Not following?
Well, All-Pro corner Patrick Peterson of the Arizona Cardinals can help clarify. After holding Megatron largely in check this past Sunday, Peterson appeared on The Dan Patrick Show earlier this week. The interview was entertaining enough. However, it got immensely more amusing when Patrick inquired as to the fastest receivers in the league that Peterson has to face.
Here is an excerpt of Peterson’s answer and, perhaps, the birth of a new term.
“The fastest receiver I ever went against is Mike Wallace — by far,” said Peterson. “Him and DeSean Jackson have what I call crackhead speed. The speed is hard to explain because those guys are so fast and you have to be on your A-Game when you go against them.”
Patrick, the professional host he is, then asked if “crackhead speed” was an official term to which Peterson nonchalantly responded.
“Yeah, it’s not an official term, it’s just something we say back in the neighborhood back home,” Peterson replied. “When you’re really, really fast you call it crackhead speed. … I don’t know what it is, what those guys were drinking coming up, but those guys definitely have a different speed than some of the other guys around the league.”
So, there you have it. The more you know.
